CardzTV DT Challenge #4 "It' a Guy Thing"

Our challenge this week was to make a masculine card using CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps " It's a Guy Thing". I actually made two cards, although I didn't start out with that idea. I'll explain later in the post.

Here is the first card:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Black, Yellow, Silver and Patterned Paper
Cricut Cartridge Father's Day, Buttons 27 and 37
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps It's a Guy Thing "Boys and Their Toys"
Black Pigment Ink
Queen and Company Pearls Nightfall, 3 Large
Mounting Tape

Last year my oldest and youngest sons decided to get their motorcycle licenses (Much to my concerns, I may have mentioned that last My youngest bought a motorcycle soon after. I tried to make the card motorcycle look similar to his. I think I did it justice.

So, after I finished that card, I decided to make another card for no particular reason except to make a card. Since I originally had no direction, I thought I would use random generator and play my challenge game. (Pick a number to coordinate with one of my Cricut Cartridges). The cartridge that came up was Celebrate With Flourish. Again, using random generator to pick the image, the #1 Dad image was chosen. Hey, another man card! So that's how the second card came about.

Here's the second card:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Orange, Green, Dark Green and Patterned Paper
Cricut Cartridge Celebrate With Flourish Happy Father's Day 1, Base and all Layers
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps It's a Guy Thing "Happy Father's Day"
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps Ticket Talk "I Love You"
Queen and Co Pearls Grass Green, 8 Small
Mounting Tape

The inside (which I forgot to take a picture) has "I Love You" stamped in orange from the CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps Ticket Talk Set .

Don't forget that Mary at CardzTV is giving away a set of stamps. Please check it out as well as the other great projects from the other Design Team Members.
